During the event Born in Africa there were presented works by contemporary African artists working in the field of various arts - music, dance and performance.

The exhibition was not a full review, but rather a slight taste of work of several artists who use their bodies as an instrument for expression. Featured artists focused on the message created by the gestures, movements and the way of dressing, finally, releasing potential and invisible energy.

There were a lot of video installations shown consisting of short movies and photographs documenting each performance. Every act was presented in a unique way and was putting forward a question of what it meant to be born in Africa. The art stirred a questions of identity, cultural independence and the possibility of individuality in a globalized world.

Born In Africa took place on November 13 at the New Theatre (Puławska 37) in Warsaw. Curators of the project were Joanna Nuckowska and Ula Sickle.
